HF Mobile in a BMW X5, any Experience?

Has anyone installed an HF mobile rig in a BMW X5? Or, even a UHF/VHF rig, for that matter.

I am in the planning stages and there are some problems to overcome: lack of dash space, appropriate high current power, transmission line routing, antenna mounting, and not least, the dire and specific warnings in at least two places on the car itself that ham radio gear could lead to death and destruction. (Well, that's not the precise wording, but it might as well be.)

I'd be curious to know how people have dealt with this. Thanks for any help you can provide.
